This article draws on the UK’s decade long experience of adopting and enforcing a criminal cartel offence in relation to individuals. It identifies four key challenges to the successful criminalization of cartel laws. These related to: (i) the legitimacy of criminalization; (ii) problems associated with leniency; (iii) the cost of enforcement; and (iv) issues relating to international enforcement. The article concludes with a set of recommendations for jurisdictions in the process of criminalizing their cartel laws or reforming their existing cartel offences.
